    Flipkart Billion Capture+ First Impressions: Of dual cameras and stock Android

    In an already overcrowded smartphone price segment, there’s yet another new entrant – Flipkart. Under its ‘Billion’ branding, the e-commerce site launched a smartphone called Capture+.

    Today marks the first year anniversary of PM Narendra Modi’s dramatic announcement of demonetization. Till that year, I hadn't quite known the existence of such a term. That currency notes could be withdrawn from circulation in an instant was an alien term to me. Till November 08, 2016.

While many were drastically impacted, others saw it as a necessary move to turn India from a cash-dependent country into a digital one. More →

    Reliance Jio throttles FUP speeds and they are a joke

    Reliance Jio has brought about a few changes to its prepaid and postpaid plans. These have not only resulted in a slight increase in the tariffs, but also brought down the validity for most of the packs. But among the most noticeable changes is the new FUP speed, which is down from 128Kbps to a measly 64Kbps. In this day and age where smartphone users are constantly connected to the internet, and consuming multimedia content on the go, this is a largely regressive move by Reliance Jio. More →

    Apple iPhone 8 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs OnePlus 5: Dual cameras compared

    With the iPhone X yet to reach the stores, the iPhone 8 Plus is clearly the best Apple smartphone you can buy. What really sets it apart is the dual-camera setup, which includes a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with f/1.8 aperture and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.8 aperture. While considered to be among the best, rival companies have lately made immense strides and competition in the smartphone photography space is as stiff as ever. More →
